It was a great day. We saw dolphins up close.
And I saw my best friends. I know that most people don't like seagulls. ("Mine!! Mine!! Mine!!") However, MOST PEOPLE did not move to Corpus Christi the summer before their 7th grade year, a year which is often lonely for most bookworms - let alone a girl who came to a town with no friends and entered a Jr. High where she heard cuss words for the first time and saw fights on at least a weekly basis. The seagulls always brought me peace and joy - I know that sounds crazy...but they did. So I was very happy to see them again today.
But the coolest thing was that my daughter decided to get a temporary tattoo - so I thought I'd follow in her footsteps. It was a very beachy, hippie, Corpus Christie-y kind of thing to do.
All in all - I'm so glad to be at the coast again.
